Healthcare is undergoing rapid changes, and they’re driven by innovation. The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, held annually in Orlando, Florida, brings together more than 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives, and vendors from around the world to share the brightest ideas in healthcare. 2017’s five-day event highlighted the growing number of solutions to improve patient health and physician efficacy.
VMware at HIMSS
At VMware booth #3661, attendees met Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most famous hacker, who demonstrated security vulnerabilities and signed copies of his book, “The Art of Invisibility.”
In addition to highlighting security, VMware featured healthcare solutions to reduce costs and improve patient care. Several VMware customers are doing just this with VMware cloud, mobile, and security solutions. Watch the video to discover how healthcare organizations are using VMware solutions to streamline care, amplify efficiencies, and deliver better healthcare.
Industry in Flux
Technology is disrupting the healthcare industry and opening up new opportunities to improve efficiency and security. Intermountain Healthcare stores all patient data electronically and uses VMware AirWatch® to assure health records are secure and the information needed for treatment is instantly accessible. “AirWatch provides the tool for us to prove that our patient data is secure,” says Rob Summers, manager of client systems engineering and operations for Intermountain Healthcare.
LCMC Health, a not-for-profit healthcare system managing five hospitals in the greater New Orleans metropolitan area, has realized a number of benefits with VMware technology. For the medical staff, the combination of a VMware Horizon® virtual desktop with single sign-on (SSO) has reduced login times significantly, allowing healthcare providers to spend more time with patients rather than waiting for a computer. The use of VMware App Volumes™ with the VDI solution also allows for rapid roll-out of applications and the ability to upgrade applications without any downtime for end users—integral features in a hospital environment where every second counts.
